2 new ideas

Post by Alex135 »

i got 2 new grate ideas that might take some time do put in... but would look
awsom...

1. Have like this pda display that you could hit a boten on
the keybord... and you would have a bunch of statistics come up.. or have it
be a new main menu...

2. 2nd i think it would be cool to have a inside tank
view... all it would take would be like an image of just the barly inside of a
tank... and make it have windows you could look out... it would look more
real that way... i just think that might be cool


Anyway. i dont think that there is much chance of these being put in... but i
thaugth it would be worth a shot...


I wold love some detalied feedback from the devs on why or why not it is
possible. that way i might be able to simplify the ideah and make it more
practicle... and also gain a further insite on how dificult things can be...

Thx in advance :)

anything is possible. someone just has to write it.

BZflag is a game with jumping tanks, that explode when they get hit by a glowing ping-pong ball, but can survive falls from infinite height... it is not meant to be a real tank simulator.

the design goals of the game state that it is to be a very simple game to learn and play. "easy to learn, difficult to master" is the term used by Tim often.

Those ideas would simply make the game more cumbersome to play. Sure it may look more like a real tank, but then you are doing things that a real tank can't do, so it just kind of gets in the way of the playing of the game.

The items you describe would not be THAT hard to do, they are simply more art on top of existing features. But they are not a thing that will be put into the bzflag game, simply because they are not really "bzflag".


and PS...
dude.. spellchecker...or at least a proofread.

idea 1 is already in there: press 'home' when in-game.

Anyways....

BZFlag is better simple, that part of what makes it a unique game. I wouldn't be playing it if it was complicated like "Half Life 2" or other games where you need three hands to get anywhere.
